I hurtfully close my eyes,
And for a moment, I wasn't there.
Hearing only quiet whimpers of hushed cries.
By the wind that blew soft and gentle.
Whispering in my ear,
That I'd be okay.
It's only It and I
Against a world that's crumbling.
Down, I fall with covering hands,
And all these thoughts come flying by.
Reality kicks in from the broken door,
My last standing defense.
And where was I to run?
Through the glass to make it hurt more?
I snap back, my eyes rapidly open and blink,
The winds' still keeping me.
Company, how it has become so small,
One person after another, but straight I must think.
My feelings now being needed to drive,
Since I can't seem to take over.
And it's quite disappointing,
Because I was trying to stay alive.
